Loan to Natsu’s acquisition of Qizini
October 1, 2015
Natsu is a privately held, European market-leading producer of ultra-fresh sushi for European retailers, primarily in Germany. Through the acquisition of Netherlands-based Qizini, Natsu strengthens its ultra-fresh offering by extending its production capabilities to sandwiches and wraps, while at the same time significantly increasing its presence in the Netherlands and Belgium.
Proventus Capital Partners believes that Natsu is well positioned to continue to grow, given Natsu’s excellent operational abilities and the attractive underlying growth drivers for ultra-fresh convenience foods, including an increasing propensity to eat out and focus on healthy convenience foods. Natsu has established itself as a European market leader in the ultra-fresh convenience food market and the acquisition of Qizini further strengthens this position.
